The International Challenge Cup (formerly the Ennia Challenge Cup and the Aegon Cup)[1] is an annual figure skating competition generally held in February or March in The Hague, Netherlands.

Medals may be awarded in men's singles, ladies' singles, pair skating, and ice dancing on the senior, junior, novice, and pre-novice levels, such as "Debs". Some categories may be omitted in some years due to a lack of participants.

History[edit]

In the 1970s and 1980s, the competition was titled the Ennia Challenge Cup and held in November.[2][3] It did not include compulsory figures.[4] The event later become known as the Aegon Challenge Cup after its title sponsor, Aegon N.V.[1]

By the 21st century, the competition had moved to February or March. The 2016 edition was cancelled.
